Convinced that the King James Bible defines its own words

By | April 29, 2010

Once you become convinced that the King James Bible defines its own words, you need to be persuaded to use the King James Bible to define its own words.

 

That God should arrange his Bible to define its own words is perfectly logical. When you are looking for the definitions of the words, you need the definitions that the author that you are reading uses for those words. Although general dictionaries of the English language don’t actually do this, they tend to give you a definition of a word. The most complex and complete dictionary of the English language, the Oxford English dictionary, does give you the definition of a word as used by different authors in the context that they are using the word. This allows you to define the word in the exact way that the author defines the word. In this way, you get the real meaning of the word in the way that the author intends.

 

The author of the Bible is God. The King James Bible is the word of God. It is full of miraculous literary devices that could not have come together over 66 books by the thought or hand of a group of authors. The King James Bible has the ability to define its own words. The King James Bible is full of examples of this. There is nothing new in this approach as some of the earliest translators of the King James Bible helped devise this wonderful phenomenon.

 

The best place to go to find a definition of a word that occurs within the King James Bible is to search the King James Bible itself for that definition. This is not as hard or as complex as it might seem. There are four simple rules or processes to follow in order to unlock the definition of any word that occurs within the 66 books of the King James Bible. These simple rules can be learnt and applied and with practice will always take you to the definition of a word that you may not understand. To get the definition of a word that is used in the King James Bible from the King James Bible itself is the surest way of knowing what the author meant by any particular word in any particular context. By using the King James Bible to reveal its own definitions you are able to come to a clear understanding of what the author means by the use of that particular word in that particular way.

 

Once you are convinced and persuaded about the King James Bible and its inbuilt dictionary you become empowered. This is not intended to be the sort of rock solid logical dogma that throws down the gauntlet of some sort of “King James Bible only cult” it is the sort of flow logic that will flow around any opposition and allow you to find out for yourself the meanings of the King James Bible and its use of different words. Nearly all of the King James Bible’s own words are Anglo-Saxon in origin. This means that they are the simple English words of one or two syllables that most of us know and grew up with. They are about 1000 words that are more complex and these more complicated words are defined with simpler words within the King James Bible. It is your privilege and adventure to discover them for yourself. Knowledge by itself means very little but knowledge coupled with effectiveness will contribute to your understanding of what God is actually saying to us in the person of his son the Lord Jesus Christ. Be effective and allow the King James Bible to contribute to your understanding of what the Lord God is actually saying to you. Don’t be content with just knowing what he says about be persuaded to act on what he says in faith, certainty and joy. Be empowered by knowing what the Lord is saying to you so that you can move on in faith and love trusting in the Lord Jesus.
